Lola Lasagne @ Central Station
30/08/16: When I asked Lola Lasagna what British Drag is, she told me it’s “Saucy, irreverent, truthful and full of caricatures” and I can tell you Ladies and Gentlemen that’s exactly what this kween brought to Central Station on Saturday night!

03/08/12: We’re not gonna lie, like most of the country, we too got caught up in an Olympic viewing loop most of last week. Thankfully our lovely Deputy Editor Lee Dalloway was there to drag (literally) our asses kicking and screaming away from the goggle box on Friday night; and on the proviso that she left her own drag pièce de résistance, ‘Demi Dalloway’, at home (sorry boss), we made a beeline to our local, Central Station, which was bustling with activity, proving not everyone was at home watching Clare Balding!
CENTRAL STATION – MISS JASON
08/06/12: Fresh from (spit)roasting Lola in Brighton (a truly hilarious night), Miss Jason stormed on to the stage at Central Station and, like Katrina, blew us away with her brilliant patter that managed to insult everybody but still leave them happy and smiling.

04/02/12: London’s weekend blizzard proved no match for a rollicking crowd of bent boozers as QX donned our snowshoes for an epic trudge across the frozen King’s Cross tundra to Central Station’s 20th birthday bash last Saturday.
